On our first review of 2011, I wanted to find a restaurant that would start our year off with a BANG. I chose South Houston in Soho because from the menu the Chos sounded good and I happened to be in the area checking out Tammany Hall (awesome new venue that you’ll know about soon).
Before we even ordered, we quickly realized that this wouldn’t be a quiet experience. On one side of us was a loud lady watching college football with her friends and on the other a couple chatted boisterously in a language I didn’t recognize. But we persisted, thinking delicious nachos could drown out the noises of the day. Promising pulled chicken and chili, the Chos sounded like a meaty dream come true, but were they?
When they arrived on the table, one thing was clear, there is definitely chili on this plate. And I quickly pondered if any of our other nachos had slivers of avocado on it. The chips were crisp and only a few buckled under the weight of the toppings. The cheese, a standard pepper jack was tasty as well. The issue I alluded was the chili; it was delicious but it overwhelmed the dish and created a mess. And the chicken was basically nonexistent and not decadent at all.
So, this wasn’t a great start, but it wasn’t awful. I am still optimistic for nachos in 2011.
